Tasting Notes

The 2013 vintage was spectacular in the Walla Walla Valley. This lives up to its promise with a dark violet color and a nose of ripe blackberry, nutmeg, eucalyptus and cashew. There are rich flavors of black currant, cinnamon, plum and violets that are structured by toasty toffee, tobacco leaf and cedar. The mid-palate is filled with robust structure and layers upon layers of complexity. The fruit elements and earthen notes are in perfect balance with silky tannins that provide a beautiful lingering finish. Drink now and until 2033.

Vineyard Notes

Vineyard Breakdown: 48% Seven Hills; 30% Heather Hill; 18% Les Collines; 4% Los Oidos The 2013 vintage was among the warmest on record for the state. While yields were high, smaller berries with thick skins created wines with dense structure and ample color and flavor. In mid-September, cooler temperatures moved in while the weather stayed dry and grapes were allowed optimum hang time before harvest.
